Guided by the theme “God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but the Spirit of strength, love and self-control (2 Tim 1, 7), the two General Councillors, Sr. Liberata Niyongira, accompanied by Sr. Honorata Lyimo, set out for the General visitation to the communities of the Saint John Paul II Delegation in Cameroon from 23 January - 14 February 2020. The Delegature consists of 16 sisters, 11 Polish missionaries, 5 native sisters, 1 novice in International Novitiate and 4 postulants.
November 11th is a very significant and festive day for the people of Poland, as they celebrate their Independence Day. It has become a tradition in Cameroon that all Polish missionaries gather for prayer and recreation on that day. Initially, meetings were organized at the Pallottine Polish mission stations. For several years, however, we have been meeting in Atok - at the Divine Mercy Sanctuary of the Diocese of Doumé Abong-Mbang, where Bishop Jan Ozga is the leader of the Church. Every year, Bishop Jan (presently the only Polish bishop in Cameroon) - presides over the solemn Mass, proclaims the Word of God and gives the latest information on the life of the Church. The meeting is always attended by the Polish Honorary Consul in Cameroon - Ms. Mirosława Etoga and other digniteries.
